Seen/Unseen by Mr Martin Kemp

Book Description

Seen | Unseen is a deep, richly illustrated, and erudite analysis of the interconnections between science and the visual arts. Martin Kemp explores the responses of artists, scientists, and their instruments, to the world - ranging from early representations of perspective, to pinhole cameras, particle accelerators and the Hubble telescope. From Leonardo, Durer, and the inventors of photography to contemporary sculptors, and from Galileo and Darwin to Stephen J. Gould, Kemp considers the way in which scientists and artists have perceived the world and responded to its patterns, and sees common 'structural intuitions' reflected in their work.

Author Biography - Mr Martin Kemp

Martin Kemp is Professor of the History of Art at the University of Oxford. He is perhaps best known as an expert in Renaissance art, and especially the work of Leonardo. Kemp himself studied both history of art and the natural sciences at Cambridge, and is as sure-footed in his treatment of the scientific context of imagery as he is in scholarly history of art. Among his books is the recent and highly successful Leonardo published by OUP.
